You mean an ionic bond? You have two different bonds in atomic structure which are widely known. The covalent bond is when atoms share electrons, while the ionic bonds happens when an ion meets another with an opposite charge.In short, it is a bond formed by the attraction between two oppositely charged ions.

An ion is formed when it has lost or gained an electron; positive if it has lost one, and negative if it has gained one.
